Ardagh and Bondeulle unveil ‘next generation’ food can

Packaging giant Ardagh and processed vegetables firm Bonduelle have launched, what they call, the ‘next generation’ food can.

According to Ardagh, in developing a new steel can for Bonduelle, the company has taken DWI food can production technology to a new level.

The company said that it has been able to employ nitrogen dosing techniques, similar to those used in the beverage industry, for the first time in food canning.

New design features have also enhanced the can’s appeal to the consumer. Beading on the can has been removed to form a more premium look and feel to the packaging, the firm said.  The new sleek surface of the can allows for premium label application or for direct printing onto the can.

In a statement, the firm added: “A further benefit to the consumer, as identified by consumer research, is the sense of freshness that comes on opening the can, created by the ‘psshht’ sound effect of the vacuum release.”

The new 400g can uses 15 % less material than the current best in class can thanks largely to an astounding 43% reduction in the can wall thickness.

Bonduelle commercial and marketing director Agnes Dion said: “Through close cooperation with Ardagh, we are delighted to continue Bonduelle’s track record of being first to market with new product innovations. This new concept contains so many benefits for the consumer, and is a true success story for sustainable metal packaging.”
